3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Amber brew qwith off white head that settles to a persistent froth. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, light malts. Taste is sweet, malt and pumpkin, with spices emerging later in the swallow. A bit of grassy bitter in the finish almost slakes the sweetness, but not quite. More emphasis on the pumpkin taste than pumpkin spice, which is good IMO. A nice brew.

Tap at Uptown Wine Bar. Nice pumpkin spice aroma, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Big malt body with slightly sweet pumpkin spicing. Clean finish, decent brew.

a moderate body and watery mouthfeel. this beer is too light on the spice and a bit more pronounced in the pumpkin flavor. there is a bit of mild hop and just a bit more malt. seems incomplete.

This is a solid pumpkin beer. The spices definitely come through in the taste, giving it a pumpkin pie flavor. Very enjoyable.

Draft at suds and duds. Pours dark orange with an inch of white that leaves a lot of lacing. A lot of nutmeg and other spices on the tongue. Finishes with a bit of yam or something.

Overall, this pumpkin beer was too malty for me and ultimately didn’t have enough pumpkin flavors or spicing. It was copper colored and had a roasted malt taste that dominated. Fairly heavy. Not my fav.

The color is clear reddish orange. Spicy aroma with apple notes along with fall spices. The palate is a little light with a slight fake pumpkin feel. OK but not as great as other pumpkin beers.

Quite simple its not better than harpoon’s pumpkin. The taste is there but the aftertaste its bland and bitter... The malt overpowers the pumpkin taste
